Specialties

Dr. John L Marsh has the following 2 specialties

  • Trauma Surgery

    Trauma surgeons treat patients who come to emergency rooms and require surgery after any kind of accident. They know how to act quickly, assess the patient’s condition, and decide on a course of action. They work fast to coordinate with other physicians and specialists in the hospital if needed, such as neurosurgeons and radiologists, so they can properly diagnose the injury and stabilize patients.
    Common trauma injuries include bleeding, burns, brain or other internal injuries, shock and loss of limbs. Because they treat patients in traumatic situations, they’re also typically skilled in offering some level of emotional support to help the patient cope with confusion and grief that may result from their accident.

Disappointment

Dr. Marsh is by far the worst orthopedic surgeon I've met since breaking my ankle. My appointment lasted almost 4 hours when all that was needed were x-rays and suture removal. He was not pleasant when he came to talk to me and did not answer my questions properly. In fact, I was reluctant to ask further questions by the negative tone of the mediocre responses I received. In the end, he told me nothing useful and simply kept asking "what did your doctor say?" in response to my questions. I had not seen this other doctor in over 3 weeks when I talked to him after my ankle surgery. Normally I leave doctor visits with a newfound sense of hope as I receive news on the progression of healing of my ankle. In this case, I felt absolutely terrible and like I had wasted my time.

Great Doctor!!

Dr. Marsh is excellent at what he does. He takes time to explain what is going on with your situation. He is caring and is fully engaged with you when you are seen at his clinic. I am very thankful he was my doctor when I was injured in a car accident. I would recommend him to anyone who has had a serious injury and needs a skilled physician to help them recover. He is AWESOME!!!
